more weeks away from the deadline to enroll in health care if you want it at the beginning of the year. hi, everybody, i'm jenna lee. the obama administration is sounding very optimistic, saying its tech team fixed the worst bugs at healthcare.gov. with the long thanksgiving weekend over, americans who couldn't enroll will take another try. is the system strong enough to handle the big load, that big rush going forward? >> have they made some progress? yes, they brought in some private sector folks to try to get the functionality up. it still doesn't function right. as a matter of fact, their own cio said that he believed if they had the ability to get up to 80% functionality, that would be a good day for them. >> i think it is good enough progress. clearly just like google and facebook all the interset sites are constantly tweaking their sites, constantly improving them, this has aways to go. it is working certainly reasonably well. jenna: peter doocy, live in washington, following the website launch from the beginning. what is the difference when you look at healthcare.gov today comp
obamacare. if they're able to win the senate and hold on to the house, obama will be a very lame duck for his last two years in office. let's bring in juan williams, our fox news political analyst. the first question for you juan, what do you think about his op-ed there? >> i think that is on target, jon. i mean look, right now as doyle points out, republicans have focused on obamacare. they have 80 plus percent of republicans unified behind opposition to obamacare. as you know, there are a lots of disputes within the party on lots of social issues, budget, all that, but not when it comes to obamacare. so now, they're trying to expand that to independents. again, when you look at the poll numbers, independents not sold. very much in fact dissuade by the president's performance in the rollout of the websites. so he lost among independents. he is losing some among democrats. and that's where republicans see an opportunity. jon: i want to take a look at the numbers. we'll get those up here shortly but the department of health and human services back in september put out an estimate of wh
. as for the acid victim, the 43-year-old lost most of his sight in one eye and 20% in the other. he's undergone 20 operations so far. jenna: what a story. thank you. jon: president obama is trying hard to reach the invincibles, pushing younger, healthier adults to sign up for insurance on health care.gov but does it make financial sense for young people who rarely see a doctor to buy into obamacare. here's a look at this story. >> the question is, and everyone can relate to this if you look back far enough, when you were in your 20's, how often did you get sick and just pop an aspirin and a sudefed? many young invincibles, 18 to 34, choose not to buy insurance because it doesn't make economic sense to them. faced with rent, a car payment, auto insurance, food, clothing, they would rather spend leftover money on travel, entertainment and beer than pay $100 to $200 for insurance for a policy that the average man or woman may not think that they need. >> a lot of people can't afford it the way it is these days. >> like six or seven of my friends are uninsured right now. >> some friends save money and
of democrats. you had the obamas, you had the clintons, and many democrats in there going to make sure we won. and with 22 governors' seats up next year that republicans have to defend, i think we're going to see more terry mcauliffes coming into office and whittling town the majority that they now hold -- down the majority that they now hold among republicans in governors' mansions. jon: you also had the republican closing that gap pretty substantially in the last few days, and some folks say if that election had been held a couple of weeks later, it might have been different. anyway, andrea, the republican party is often described as being beset by this schism between tea party members and other more long-term, longtime, more traditional maybe republicans. what do you think about what's happening apparently in the democratic party right now? >> sure. it's on both sides of the aisle. david's not being intellectually honest. the right has their far right, and the left has their far left. democrats have done a pretty good job of keeping their intra-party fighting out of the headlines until rec
